What we like about the Nomad Barber

The nomad Barber has a really chilled vibe to his his barbering videos.

And he always seems to be at ease either with his clients or when he getting a haircut.

Whilst he obviously knows about ASMR the main focus is always on the barbering. And like many of the best, purest ASMR videos, these are the ones that work the best where there is no artifice.

And I also really liked the way he cuts hair as well. It’s theatrical, without being over the top. There is always a sense of performance about what he does.

I always liked his travel barbering videos as well. You got to see some interesting barber shops and places whether in Hong Kong, Cape Town, Taiwan or Thailand.

Hopefully he can do more of these soon. Pretty please!

Overall some of the videos are really brilliant for ASMR. Try this one from Taipei – lots of face and hand massages. As well as a great shave!

And do look at this one in Lytham from a couple of years ago with some really neat face and head massages as he is pampered in a spa. Watch out for the wee dog as well!

My favourite Nomad Barber video:

This is an amazing head massage video from back in 2014 with 4.5 million views. And one of the early ones that introduced me to the Nomad Barber.

Shot in Jakarta it is 13 minutes long, but always seems longer, in a good way! It is a really thorough massage. And with the main focus on the head, neck, face and temples. But the shoulders get a really good work out. And there is the obligatory cracking of the neck as well.

He finishes off with some hand chopping, neck rubs and a combing to style the hair.

Guaranteed to set off lots of triggers for some great tingles!
